sites for a va­ri­ety of construction work. The RT530E-2 cranes are also used to sup­port the GMK5220 in its pri­mary func­tion: as­sem­bling tower cranes.

Jose Ma­ga­jes, head of op­er­a­tions at MEQ, said con­di­tions at the com­pany’s pre­cast yard made the RT530E-2 a nat­u­ral choice.

"When it rains our yard be­comes muddy, so I pre­fer to use rough-ter­rain cranes for the lift­ing work. We have mostly de­ployed our RT530E-2 cranes at the stag­ing ar­eas of the plants, where we use them to han­dle re­bar and form­work, as well as fin­ished pre­cast sec­tions," he says.

Like all Grove rough-ter­rain cranes the RT530E-2 fea­tures rugged, deep-box sec­tion frames for bet­ter per­for­mance in tough con­di­tions. The crane has a max­i­mum ca­pac­ity of 30 t, a main boom length of 29 m and a max­i­mum tip height of 44.5 m when work­ing with its full jib at­tach­ment. Four steer­ing modes al­low easy ma­neu­ver­ing in tight quar­ters, while it also per­forms well when lift­ing on tires, mak­ing it ideal for pick-and-carry work. These qual­i­ties, as well as the RT530E-2’s famed reli­a­bil­ity, are what per­suaded Ma­ga­jes to pur­chase the cranes for MEQ.

“I know Grove cranes are re­li­able and backed by Man­i­towoc Crane Care, which is al­ways good,” he said. “We could have opted for cheaper op­tions at this ca­pac­ity, but we knew the RT530E-2 was the right choice for us.”

MDC was es­tab­lished in 1974. It is the construction arm of lead­ing Philip­pines real es­tate com­pany, Ayala Land. MDC’s projects in­clude mixed-use, com­mer­cial and res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ments, such as of­fices, ho­tels, re­sorts, shop­ping malls, pub­lic hous­ing, con­do­mini­ums, town­ships and hospitals. Till date, it has com­pleted over 400 projects.

MEQ, now in its 4th year of op­er­a­tion, con­tin­ues to grow and is cur­rently one of the coun­try’s lead­ing equip­ment so­lu­tions providers. MEQ pro­vides construction equip­ment for hundreds of MDC projects across the Philip­pines, and the fleet cur­rently num­bers more than a thou­sand machines.
